international experts push on with designing syria with chemical weapons grills you want to fishel over inconsistences and the world body is report on the use of gas in the country. washington police shoot an unarmed female driver in front of her child up to show rammed into a security barrier is near the white house a car chase. and a drug dealer and i say cheap which seem to suggest he'd like to see edward snowden on a kill list provides criticism online but he retired that there were times security boss who was simply misunderstood.
8:01 am
international news live from moscow this is. the deadly nerve gas attack in the suburbs of the syrian capital in all grist was orchestrated by an al qaeda linked group box by saudi arabia that's according to russian diplomatic sources who spoke on condition of anonymity to russia's interfax news agency the us and its allies have been blaming the syrian government for that stock a u.n. report earlier concluded that nerve gas had indeed been used on a large scale in august but the consistency of the findings are under question as a. explained. the report on the use of chemical weapons the first report was released a couple of weeks ago the next report is expected by the end of the year and this is going to be the full report but the spectre's claim to use very very reliable
8:02 am
scientific methods but if you actually go and look at the war there are so many questions and the main question is of war is. reliability of the whole research because just to explain you quickly what the inspectors did they either went to several sites or. area the area of the horrible videos of children and bodies and. at one location they spread that around to all the another location is spent around five hours and they try to collect samples environmental samples tissue. fabric soil i don't see interviews survivors and take blood samples from them and the biggest problem there is that none of the environmental samples that they concluded was tested positively for sarin but all the survivors for some reason tested positive i suggest we listen to one of the sound bites from the interview that i did with angela kane the year and high
8:03 am
representative for disarmament affairs i think that would read things into perspective they did prove that they are and was evident in the samples they found but on the other hand if they did not find samples in the environmental in the environmental samples if they did not find certain the environmental samples it just testifies to the honesty of the reinspection so they're saying this is what we found this is what we took now of course it's interesting that. would talk about the almost you know the inspectors i think we would expect nothing less from the year the personnel but. you need to understand what actually happened whenever the investigators had a chance to do the job whenever they had the freedom to go around and collect samples none of them test positively and yet whenever they tried to get some tissue samples from people who were reflected by the opposition they all test positively
8:04 am
and this is statistically it's simply impossible i mean there are just two possible explanations either the united nation inspectors didn't know how to do that job or . there's environmental samples or the opposition tried to influence the investigation and. brought people who were probably exposed to serin but at some other location and you make your pick and it's up to you who you trust more the u.n. inspectors or the opposition what i find extremely interesting and inexplicable to me is that the human specter is in the u.n. reports would still claim that they have a clear and convincing evidence that sarin was used worse as we just discussed those evidence i'm not there clear north insisting. the investigation is continuing of course but of course the reports of deaths or the mass chemical or talk near damascus ranges from hundreds to thousands. well actually did the inspectors examine the board use them so well it is also
8:05 am
a very interesting case because we all remember that you know those pictures of dead children bodies were the main case for president obama the main reason for president obama to go to war in syria he wanted to punish president assad for killing all those people and what's strange is the u.n. inspectors didn't even request to see not there of those bodies they didn't want to see the autopsies they didn't want to go to the morgue and. this is how this can explain the reasons why such requests from. there were so many victims who were still alive that there was really no need to to exuma bodies and basically to tissue from them because there were so many victims who were alive but we had also complete case history meaning that the victims were able to tell how they were affected what they felt what the symptoms were which is much more powerful than taking tissue from from the from
8:06 am
a body well. in my humble opinion autopsy is a very very rich source of any sort of information and war over the u.n. inspectors side a lot of stories about a lot of interviews about how many people were killed at some point and they report they say that. they were like. a family of forty people killed in them and yet for some reason they make absolutely no efforts you go and see those bodies. and what led to a chase in washington d.c. which caused a security long donald government and ended with an armed woman being shot in front of her baby by police on thursday she was reportedly a dental hygienist who suffered from postnatal depression the driver crashed into security barricades near the white house and then try to escape from police was campus or hell ramming a secret service vehicle on the way security officers fired six shots fatally
8:07 am
wounding the woman in front of her one year old who was in the car but unharmed and if you take a look at this month right here you can see how the traits unfold with rant central washington and starting at the white house the suspect advances all the way to the competent building coming under police fire that the chase ended almost two miles away from the white house where the trial was killed dr mark mason believes officials had other ways they could have stopped the woman. given the fact that we have been on armed female the police have comported say that she was armed there was an imprint in the car. there was no gun fire of any kind that came from the car at any time a lot of questions need to be asked i think that there is reason to believe that the police in washington d.c. we overreacted that there are alternatives to respond to situations short of deadly force in a speeding car it's
8:08 am
a variety of ways it's stopping them tires heavier and then they can be punctured by various means we put strips on the front of the vehicles so they can shoot out the tires because they have these rope things that they don't have a lot of time but all this whole situation is that the police had no evidence that she had any gun and she had not used any weapon at all she was using a vehicle that vehicle must receive attention yes of course. the one year old child now remains in perspective custody the incident a raised questions over how police handled the situation back in may twenty seven year old mind abraham to die was finally was facing me by agents in miami following hours during questioning and we got to his possible connection to the boston bombings day so now i have brought this to this day of that incident or maine and
8:09 am
he at the is to have been on yes at least six shots were fired at him when he reportedly trying to attack one of the police offices in a while back in april joe hot said not the twenty year old suspect that's back to boston mass in boma was captured alive by police after a man hunt last several days and now domains and passed away. the panic in washington d.c. came amid high tensions on capitol hill where lawmakers are still unable to agree a new national budget president obama is forced to pull his trip to asia because of the political impasse in his country while the u.s. treasury issues old warning of a looming and catastrophic default. e.u. lawmakers decision to uproot cia contracts are turned whistleblower edward snowden on the final list of nominees for the european human rights prize has received plaudits for people around the world and his former boss however is not among them
8:10 am
and says he dreams i was somewhat different fate for snowden is marina part now reports. well speaking at a washington post panel discussion on a cyber security former n.s.a. director general michael hayden joked about putting edward snowden on a list that has very little to do with human rights or honorable recognition america's former spy chief eg knowledge that snowden an n.s.a. whistleblower has been nominated for a human rights award and then reportedly said quote i must admit in my darker moment over the past several months i had also thought of nominating mr snowden but it was for a different list unquote some journalists including brendan sasso from the hill blog have interpreted mr hayden's words to mean putting snowden on america's kill list now general hayden confirmed to me that the quote is correct but he claims that his words have been misinterpreted and he never proposed for snowden to be put on any assassination list but some would argue that this is probably the worst time
8:11 am
for any former or current top u.s. official to even speak sarcastically about putting snowden on a list and that's because journalists jeremy scahill and glenn greenwald are currently working together on a joint investigation on how the u.s. national security agency has been involved in the wider overseas assassination program run by the obama administration now both of these journalists are known for their hard hitting investigations of the u.s. government and their collaboration will reportedly reveal how they say the vast surveillance network of the n.s.a. operates in conjunction with the clandestine operations run by the u.s. military or the cia now for those who don't know the so hot a prize that snowden is nominated for was established by the european parliament in order to acknowledge individuals or organizations who have dedicated their lives to human rights and freedom of thought reporting from new york marina poor nial r.t.

. who acts of his david swanson feels it's high time for the ruling elites in washington to be more careful with. when you joke about killing somebody with an ax your viewed as a sociopath when you joke about killing people with a million dollar missile you are considered a big powerful person who knows lots of secret stuff and so your rage is directed in particular at people who reveal that secret stuff so we've arrived at the point of putting whistleblowers and those who leak information for whatever reason on the list of enemies as if they are fighting a war because they are revealing the secret information including embarrassing and humiliating information it is of course outrageous criminal and in fact sociopathic and i think the timing is the same timing of the past weeks and months in which this has become a top problem in the u.s.
8:13 am
government the audience laughed when president obama joked about using predator drones against his daughter's boyfriends joking about war in u.s. culture is acceptable people talk seriously about new wars and people who claim to oppose it don't speak up with outrage. to revolutionize the whole concept of the money with a truck full of gold political to be grounded but in a few minutes find out what this modes of running. there's a media elite are so we leave them to be. by the sea motions to the play your party there's a bill. for shoes that no one is as good with the guests they deserve answers from it's all on politics.

more news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada. showing operation. this is the welcome back the international monetary fund is concerned about the
8:15 am
looming global economic threats coming from america's failure to resolve its debt crisis i'm asked christine lagarde the u.s. budget standoff with significantly deteriorate if congress doesn't raise its debt ceiling like it's done many times before the ongoing political uncertainty over the budget over the debt ceiling does not help the government shutdown is bad enough but failure to raise the debt ceiling would be far worse. and could very seriously damage not only the u.s. economy but also the entire global economy. time is ticking for you us with less than two weeks left until it runs out of money failure to find a solution will lead to devastating effects as the official warning from the u.s. treasury departments predicting an unprecedented default with catastrophic consequences and says
8:16 am
a collapse of the american economy would send shock waves across the globe and doing with the financial crisis and recession worse than the two thousand and eight meltdown the government shutdown is taking its toll on the president's plans as well with rock obama forced a council trip to asia and missed two summits the federal stoppage of place hundreds of thousands of workers on unpaid leave it's costing the market economy at least three hundred million dollars every day hitting businesses and consumer confidence and leaving from the city university of new york says the crisis has been building for years. between crisis there is a new normal in the economy and seems to be a new normal in our political system this isn't the first time that congress hasn't passed a budget by october first which was the deadline it's the twelve consecutive year that they failed to meet the deadline the only reason there hasn't been a shutdown for the last twelve years there's always been these temporary resolutions that's the bill for
8:17 am
a six week temporary resolution that the house speaker of the house john boehner is refusing to put before the congress for a vote right now so there is no constitutional mechanism and that suggests some sort of constitutional crisis in a time when the economy is provoking serious conflict in the party movement and the middle and they joined live by the president on. john c. housman enterprises of his wrist consulting mr houseman welcome to see good to see you with us so obviously we're hearing long as we're here we're hearing multiple warnings from all sides now but what is actually being done to see tackled this crisis to resolve it. well i think the most important warning is that of the american people the new c.b.s. poll numbers are out today and seventy two percent of the people don't want the tea party to hold the country hostage over obamacare by the way most americans are against obamacare but seventy two percent do not want the full faith and credit of
8:18 am
the united states which comes up in fourteen days to be on the line to defund this rather they want what mr jefferson wanted we have elections republicans win the presidency in two thousand and sixteen retake the senate in two thousand and fourteen they can repeal obamacare but you don't do it in this way and the danger with doing this is that people could miscalculate treasury department the bond traders the i.m.f. and the guy in the street no the to risk the american economy over this issue is ridiculous the problem is people can miscalculate because remember seventy two percent of americans are against doing this but fifty seven percent of the people who say they're with the. party are for what's going on so if you're a tea party supporter and you look at your local numbers you say keep going which is of course a disaster for the country and indeed the world the crisis has been now really voided multiple times in the possible so what would prevent it from happening again well i think that again human error i mean you know we're one hundred years out
8:19 am
from world war i want to nobody can tell you why that war started exactly human beings make mistakes and the closer it gets to the deadline the more likely a mistake could be made the good news coming out of washington today is that those around john boehner speaker of the house are already saying if it comes to a boehner will go ahead and put something on the floor to avoid a default with democratic support and about ten to fifteen republicans this would cost the speaker of the house his job what he's hoping is that in the next week as the pressure builds up christine legarde doesn't frankly matter a whole lot the treasury does the poll takers do and if you look at those numbers getting tougher if one third of the caucus is kamikaze against helping one third would go along with boehner it's that middle third that is critical if they begin to rally around the speaker he will indeed move on this and save his speakership but i refrained play think that the odds are still highly stacked against it falling apart but you can never tell what human beings are likely to do mistakes certainly could be made right joan see housman line from funk food mr houseman thank you very much indeed for your time. the federal stoppage is in its fourth day
8:20 am
now and with congress continue to squabble there are fears it could drag on for another week or even more and the american people's trust and they call me is plummeting according to a recent gallup poll economic confidence has nosedived since the federal government brought its operations to a stop and it fell two minutes to minus thirty two points which is the lowest in more than a year and his interview show politicking larry king spoke to american business modern age donald trump to get his view on the events unfolding in the u.s. and here's a preview of the program coming up for you throughout the day here on a c. the government shutdown what's your take well it's a mess larry i mean the whole country is being scuffed at in left and we're not doing well as a country as you know we will no longer be the great economic power in two thousand and sixteen as you know china will be replacing us if we keep going the way we're
8:21 am
going which looks like inevitable that's a fact the fact we passed a health care law right the supreme court upheld it right and the republicans don't want to fund it well it's a law that really has to be that's true and a law it's still a year away and i understand where you're coming from but it is something that's turning out to be very negative it's having a huge negative impact on business so reveals happening and i guess that's what is going to happen one way or the other i don't see this getting them to the end but i fully understand what the republicans are doing i really like the wall street journal it's a major mistake well a lot of because there is a golden well let's see how it happens last a strange things happen larry let's see what happens in the end but they are very committed to killing obamacare but everybody's committed obama's committed to a moment if you like commitment he's committed you would certainly think that he's not going to end it and that's what they want so it's a tough it's a very tough situation for the country and it's somewhat embarrassing for the country. much more government must now shut down until congress
8:22 am
funds it again. and just full time switzerland could become a big can of social security and that time ever one in the country could be guaranteed a basic income to live on. was robbed maybe to agency to follow the story and it's only reports not found that it. what we're seeing here in switzerland is a completely revolutionary outlook towards the social welfare system what's being proposed by a group of swiss citizens is a guaranteed minimum income now what that would mean is that every citizen whether working in which every job or not at all would receive a set amount of money now with order to try and illustrate their point that switzerland is such a wealthy country and it has a mountain of money that can be shared out around all of its citizens what we're seeing right now happening just over to my right is. fifteen
8:23 am
tons of gold coins poured out onto the parliament square here that's four hundred thousand swiss francs worth of money that's around three hundred fifty thousand euro now this new revolutionary plan and as i say it's resulted in this outpouring of gold coins is well it's caused some consternation is it just free money or will it result in people not even bothering to work now those behind the scheme say that it will actually encourage people to work it will encourage people to to follow their dreams they say that this will allow them allow people in the country a right to dignity you know right to choose exactly what they want to do not pressured by the stream precious of having to finance their everyday lives they say that the modern world has created a situation whereby people don't work for what they enjoy they work in order to just pay their bills and they want to change this now when it comes to financing it
8:24 am
well that's where it gets into the real political wrangling and if this does get beyond a referendum that's certainly something that's going to be discussed it has been put forward the perhaps taxes could be raised it's also being put forward that could be a financial transaction tax of course switzerland one of the major banking centers of the world if not the major banking center of the world also a rise in v.a. t. in value added tax could be brought in. but it's a certainly a revolutionary scheme that they're looking forward to putting to parliament here and is set to change perhaps even the very way that we concept work is what this initiative hopes to do is make sure that switzerland's huge mountains of wealth could actually become the face for all of its citizens. and staying with switzerland as our world update was started with an anti fever protest in zero eight so as trade unions showed a symbolic red card to the football governing body outside its headquarters their rally was time to take place at the start of

a fee for me staying on the twenty twenty two world cup which is said to be hosted by council on the gulf state came under fire after newspaper reports showing dozens of new poly workers have died while constructing facilities for the tournament. hundreds of left wing activists clash with police in germany as they're tempted to celebrations marking the country's reunification day but they are strangers mostly from communist and on it is groups stage their protest accusing the government of fueling prices war and poverty the country was reunited in one thousand nine hundred ninety following the fall of the berlin wall and the collapse of the communist east german state. security is being increased around cairo's tahrir square head of planned protest by the supporters of egypt's deposed in the midst president mohammed morsi the army is deploying troops and tanks and setting out barbed wire to prevent grants from entering earlier in

the week for more supertaster is managed to take over this square for the first time in months but were soon dispatched this summer so frequent clashes between rival groups across the country which left more than a thousand people dead. and coming away. with the legendary host larry king he'll announce he did state that. you know i'm old enough to remember on reruns when gomer pyle used to cry citizen's arrest when he saw something wrong in mayberry and a new law in russia could allow our city average to do the same thing by helping to enforce law in the country this low allows citizens to protect public order by
8:27 am
becoming volunteer workers deputy policeman and even forming people's militias which will in theory prevent crime or at least allow the police to be informed more quickly and accurately of course this like any project which sounds nice on paper is all about the implementation so we'll see how these deputies and militias will work overall i think this won't have much of an effect on crime but it could have a huge impact on non-criminal bad public behavior you know i am not the bravest guy on the planet and it's hard to confront a group of five drunk guys who are just as big as you who are acting like idiots on the street but doing so with ten stone sober militiaman buddies could provide a much more convincing argument for the drunkard's this could be a big step forward for democracy when you actually have at least a scrap of power or control over the events in your neighborhood then you are sure feel like people actually have a lot of power and this could be good for the country but that's just my opinion.
8:28 am
no c n n m s n b c news. lately but the fact is i admire their commitment to cover all sides of the story just in case one of them happens to be accurate. that was funny but it's closer to the truth and might think. it's because when full attention and the mainstream media works side by side the joke is actually on you. and our team we have to print press. because the news of the world just is not this funny i'm not laughing dammit i'm not how. you guys have to jeff's well hand over there said that.
